OJHL East Division Week in Review
Game of the Week Review: Kingston Voyageurs @ Trenton GoldenHawks
The Vees made the Quick trip down the 401 to the Duncan Memorial Arena to take on the Trenton Golden Hawks, in a battle for supremacy of the highly competitive East division. In the first period would go scoreless but saw both team trade chances back and forth for the duration. The Vees would jump out front early in the second with tallies from Alex Tonge and Joey Rutkowski. The Golden Hawks would respond about 2 minutes later when hulking winger Brady Wiffen would pot one. Spencer Green would replenish the right before Brett Seney would add another to give the Vees a 4-1 lead. Early in the third the Golden Hawks would respond with goals from Danny Liscio and Zach De Concilys. However that would be the end of the scoring and Kingston would hold onto their lead, and walk out of the “Dunc” with a W.
Game of the Week Preview: Wellington Dukes vs Cobourg Cougars
Friday night at the Duke Dome will see Cougars come into town and try to uptake the League Leading Wellington Dukes. The last place Cougars, lead by captain Connor Armour, are looking to prove they can compete with the giants of the East and high flying Dukes. The Wellington Dukes, who will be without Mike Soucier, are looking to add to their lead of the league. Should make for a competitive game.
3 stars of the week
Trevor Cope- 2gp 2g 4a 6pts (WEL)
The Western Michigan commit has been consistent since his OJHL debut, but this week he was outstanding being a go to guy for Marty Abrams and the Wellington Dukes.
Erick Delaurentis- 2gp 1g 3a 4pts (WEL)
The three year veteran has been on a torrid pace since the first couple weeks of the season, one of the leaders of the Dukes he also is one of the top scorers in the league.
Greg Milner- 2gp 1g 4a 5pts (WHI)
The Whitby overager will be counted on for the next week while leading scorer Taylor Best is off to the WJAC.
Rookie of the Week
Maurizio Colella- The Hulking Wellington Dukes forward gets the nod for ROW for scoring his first Junior hockey goal and was no bluepaint goal. A great snipe from just past the blueline.
